I wish the Elation had balcony cabins, Jr Suite (with obscured view) was nice but pricey. We loved the cabin size and the refrigerator!! The balcony is small and over-looks a walkway. Read entire member review >>
This cabin was less expensive because of the obstructed view but the view is actually not obstructed at all. There is the tip of the rescue boat that sticks out barely on the balcony but otherwise the view was awesome. The cabin size was perfect. Read entire member review >>
The room was actually more spacious than we were expecting and I thought it was great. Having the balcony was nice, but we didn't use it very much.
Interesting that there is pretty limited drawer space, but a huge amount of space for a bar underneath the TV. Seems like not a great use of space.
Our crew steward Richard did a great job, went above & beyond request and was always happy. Read entire member review >>
Our room (V-27): I booked this for a reduced price, knowing that it had a partially obstructed view. The balcony is actually between a smaller boat and a life boat. So, you still get the advantage of a balcony had a great price. The cabin was larger than we expected. Also, the steward made up the couch into a twin size bed for our son, and kept this made up for the entire trip. We had a small refrigerator, that kept our drinks very cold. There was a thermostat in the room, and a flat screen television. We also had plenty of room for clothes and bags. The cabin was also very quiet. We were extremely happy with this cabin, and would recommend it for anyone looking for a balcony junior suite at a fantastic price. Read entire member review >>
My cabin said that the view was obstructed, however I was in between life boats and had an actual really nice view. Our room was clean and our Steward Tapa and her assistant Lawrence were on top of making sure we had everything we needed. Read entire member review >>
Our room (Veranda deck # 23) was nice and big enough for 2 people, with plenty of storage space, drawers, 2 closets, and lots of hangers, and a sofa and table. There is a vanity with 2 electrical outlets and 2 more outlets on the TV cabinet. No hair dryer, clock (except on TV display), nite light, or coffee pot. :( Liquid soap & shampoo fill dispensers in the shower and some sample tolietries are on the counter. The medicine cabinet has enough room to store all of your tolietries. The refrigerator was not very cold, but our room stewardess kept the ice bucket full without asking. Sodas and water are provided in the room, but charged to your S&S card if used (about $2.50 for sodas & $4 for water). I thought the bed was too firm, but my husband liked it. 4 nice, soft pillows. The air conditioning is adjustable. The balcony is small (about 5' long by 3' wide) with a partially obstructed view (a life boat in front of half the balcony). Bring a bungee cord to keep the balcony door open (a smashed soda can in the door frame works too). Read entire member review >>
